Wedding Season

Wedding season is soon approaching and although couples get married all year round, Spring is considered the beginning of wedding season and this runs all up too October. Below are a few of my tips. Friends, I went through the entire wedding planning situation, and the stress factor, Yes, I was what you can call your bridezilla! I did it all diets etc... below are a few tips, to keep your wedding planning sanity.... As we go along I will blog more on how to maintain your budget, where to start, what to look for, what to expect etc.. I do recommend that if you can afford, or even to guide you through, hire a wedding planner, they truly do help you keep and maintain your wedding planning sanity.

Wedding Website
A new trend in wedding planning is the wedding website. Rather than prompting friends and family to sign up with a network or navigate a virtual maze to find information, couples can display all of their wedding plans and info in one place, at one custom URL. A wedding website is a valuable asset in pre-wedding communication. Avoid all the calls from Great Aunt Ethel while she nails down hotel accommodations, just include the details on your website. Eliminate the cost of an added registry card with your invitations, and supply direct links through your couples site. You can even include a custom gallery of your courtship and engagement. The options are limitless, and will be determined by you and your web designer.

Staying Fit
Two of the most stressful things is life are losing weight and getting married…and going through them both at the same time makes for good TV. The CW’s new reality competition, Shedding for the Wedding premiered last night, in which nine overweight couples compete to lose the excess pounds and win the wedding of their dreams. The series is hosted by actress Sara Rue, who recently shed 50 pounds of her own with Jenny Craig… Check it out and take notes and shed the weigh.

Believe it or not, wedding planning doesn’t have to be like this. Don’t fall victim to Bridezilla-itis. I did and this is why I am reaching out to you. You can rise above the stress and actually have fun during this most exciting time in your life. The solution is simple – let go. Release a little responsibility and don’t let yourself get too worked up over the details.

Very Important Wedding Invitation
Wedding invitations are an important first impression for your wedding. Getting invitation right – and sent on time – can set the tone for your entire celebration. I will post as we go along a few tips to creating and sending the best invitations possible for your wedding.

Wedding Planning Check List
A wedding checklist is essential to every wedding to ensure that no detail has been missed and that things are going the way they are supposed to. The checklist usually has several time lines and the time frames usually vary as the wedding date approaches. It starts with a ‘months before’ category, translates to the ‘weeks before’ category and eventually to the ‘days before’ category. I will put together a detailed sample wedding checklist which you could use as in your own wedding.

Bridesmaids Choose Wisely
Being the bride makes you the center of attention; however, it also causes you a lot of stress because of the wedding preparations and the emotions that you are feeling. There should be a support group that can help you through these situations. This is the main duty of the Maid of Honor and bridesmaids, and most important your planner if you have one.

How To Live Happily Ever After
How many books have you read with the ending line, “…and they lived happily ever after”? Have you ever dreamed of being the couple in that book? Of course you have, we all have! Marriage can and should be all about living ‘happily ever after’ together. That is not to say that you are going to be able to live your entire lives together and never disagree or bicker, marriages are hard work, and you will have your ups and down. But, with a little bit of hard work, and some pointers, you and your spouse can indeed live or to the least live happily ever after.
